Chinese Medicine is an ancient method of healing that originated in the Far East several thousand years ago. This complementary health system treats the whole body as an entirety and can therefore improve wellbeing in addition to a range of physical issues. As a result, patient often notice an improvement in certain problems and their overall sense of wellbeing from treatment.
Chinese Medical treatment is based on the belief that diagnosis and treatment is made according to energetic imbalances within the body and therefore aims treat the root cause of the problem rather than just the symptom itself. As treatment aims to re-establish an individual’s energetic imbalances, patients frequently benefit from an improvement in their symptoms.
Many patients chose to continue treatment after their original main complaint has improved in order to optimise the effects of acupuncture.
This aspect of Chinese Medicine comprises the insertion of very fine, sterile, disposable needles into specific acupuncture points on the body.
Acupuncture involves improving the flow of qi energy through channels in the body, each of which are traditionally believed to be linked to specific organs. Blockages or poor flow of energy in these channels is thought to result in internal imbalance. Acupuncturists believe that the needles stimulate the improved flow of energy and allow the body to rectify the imbalance in qi energy flow.

It can help treat stress, anxiety and depression
IBS / constipation
Migraines: I have suffered from migraines for about 7 years. They come on suddenly and I just have to go to bed for 2 days when it happens. I was desperate for something to help and my friend suggested acupuncture as she had been to Natalie before. After a few weeks the migraines were less frequent and less severe. Now I haven't had a migraine for about a year.
Anxiety: Before I came to Natalie for acupuncture, I suffered with anxiety the whole of my adult life. It affected every part of my life, even to the point where I had to stop driving because of it. After a few sessions, I noticed I felt much less anxious and stressed...now I hardly notice it at all. It has changed my life.
Fertility: I am convinced that coming to Natalie for acupuncture helped us conceive. We had had 3 failed IVF cycles and then I started coming to Natalie for acupuncture and reflexology before my 4th attempt and that was the one that worked! It helped enormously with my stress levels during pregnancy too.
